Conventional prognostic factors fail to explain better prostate cancer survival in most Asian men
... journal of the American Cancer Society, the study showed
that compared to white men, most Asian ethnic groups except South Asians paradoxically have better outcomes despite having worse prognostic profiles at the time of diagnosis. The study is the first to report prostate cancer survival data for Korean,...

that when those patients are matched with patient-centered doctors who want them to take a highly active role, they're less likely to follow treatment recommendations or feel satisfied with their care. "There's really a sizable subset of patients w...

that the rate of new cases fell steadily by between 2.4 and 2.9% a year in women and men, respectively. Dysplasia, which was diagnosed in just over 8500 patients, and atrophic gastritis, which was diagnosed in just over 23,000, both fell by more th...

that Medicare costs for ESRD reached $20.1 billion, while non-Medicare costs rose to $12.4 billion." Costs for the care of ESRD patients now account for 6.7 percent of total Medicare expenditures. In recent years, the research focus has been on chr...

that IKKa phosphorylates CBP in the nucleus, switching CBP's binding preference to the NF"B oncogene, promoting cell growth. Unphosphorylated CBP helps p53 do its job suppressing cancer by forcing defective cells to kill themselves, programmed cell d...

that as few as two mutations to this receptor binding domain could enhance the ability of H5N1 to recognize human cells. Additional mutations would likely need to accumulate for H5N1 to spread more easily from person to person, says Dr. Nabel. The...
